Well certainly having Ellis doing that here will be 'for the win'.

Nothing wrong with Poile always looking for value though, when he has Weber, Suter, Blum, Josi, Klein, Franson, and Ellis. And not a comparable forward group. Will Ellis displace Suter on the powerplay soon or will be on the number two unit for awhile even after he arrives, which gets fewer minutes?

Personally, I think he makes the NHL and will look good offensively, and he'll have big value then if Poile ever wants to make a move, or he can use someone else who then becomes more expendable. But he's not here yet and I wasn't alarmed to hear Poile was willing to look at a deal for a forward he really liked.

It's going to be a lot of fun seeing what Ellis can do in Milwaukee.
